This is a very strange Turkish film from 1973. It's sourced from a poor condition VHS tape, so it suffers from the same preservation issues as most all vintage Turkish films. It's recommended for people with an interest in cult cinema and/or old Turkish films. The plot: Super villain "Mad Girl", who's dressed in a red Vampira suit, is trying to take over the world. She works for another villain, who's dressed all in red and wears a dime store devil mask. Aiding her in her attempt at...

Swamp Women, produced in 1955, was the first film ever directed by Roger Corman. The film follows undercover police officer Lee Hampton after she infiltrates a prison, befriends three female convicts, and helps them all escape. In reality, this planned escape is part of a larger plot to find a diamond stash hidden deep within the swamps of Louisiana. This is a fairly poor quality copy of the movie, with film splicing of a different print evident from 1:00:30 to 1:00:59 This film is in the...

"Do they dance in Hell? If they do then this is maybe what it is like. We join the scene of naïve celebration among the dancers when a demon bursts through onto the scene to torment the only black dancer with a version of the cake-walk that has the fires of damnation behind it. Back when many films were very descriptive and very 'real' in their subjects, Méliès must have been a bewildering influence.

Set in a toy tabletop town, this film uses brightly colored model cars and trucks to demonstrate a range of driving safety scenarios. The number of near-misses and accidents would make for an extremely violent film if real vehicles and people were used, but the models keep the feeling of mayhem at a distance. An unusual example of a rich tradition within the safety film genre: the tabletop model.
